mr. speaker, we defeated it, defeated it by a wide margin in this body. what we have is a debt crisis. now, mr. speaker, if it were just existing debt, perhaps we could work out a way to finance that, but it's not. it's continued borrowing each and every day to the tune of 42 cents of every dollar that we spend. 42 cents of every dollar we spend, mr. speaker. in other words, if we paid for medicare, medicaid, social security, interest on the national debt, those other mandatory spending programs, just those, mr. speaker, we already spent every nickel in federal revenue. that means every nickel that we spend for education, every nickel that we spend for trappings, every nickel we -- transportation, every nickel we spend for environment, on the courts, every other nickel we borrow with absolutely no plan, mr. speaker, for changing that going forward.
